Dinatu's story

Dinatu is married and lives with her family in a humble mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In her community, farming is the primary occupation and, like many driven smallholder farmers, Dinatu dreams of scaling her farm business.

Dinatu is returning to work with Babban Gona this season as she will get access to better-yielding seeds, fertilizers and other essential farm inputs that will boost her yield. Apart from increasing Dinatu's yield to ensure that her family never goes hungry, this loan will also help her earn net income up to 3 times higher, compared to the average Nigerian farmer, from selling her maize. Since she joined Babban Gona, her happiest memory was sending her children to school.

With support from lenders to grow her farming business, Dinatu is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. Dinatu plans to use the profits from this season's harvest to pay her children's school fees.
